Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has been talking about Antoine Griezmann’s future amid continued speculation he will join Barcelona in the summer.

Reports have claimed Barcelona have already agreed a deal with the player and that he has been house-hunting in the city ahead of a summer move.

Simeone’s answer was pretty cryptic when asked about Griezmann, who scored one and assisted in Atletico’s 3-0 win over Celta Vigo on Sunday.

“I have to talk about realities,” he said.

“Today he is with us, he plays fantastically well and there is very good togetherness with the fans.

”He scored a great goal, he made the second goal and he worked for the team. This is the reality - tomorrow will be tomorrow.”

Midfielder Gabi also spoke about Griezmann and said all he wants is for the Frenchman to keep giving his all for the club.

“All I’ve asked of him is that whilst he is with us, he gives everything, as he is doing,” he said.

”Antoine is a special boy to everyone related to this club, he’s loved in the dressing room.

”He puts the team on another level and he’s one of the few in this team who can make a difference.”

Barcelona have been busy in the transfer market lately spending heavily on Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele, and announcing today they have a deal to sign Arthur.

Is Griezmann next?
